Will this charger work?

I have been thinking about getting a wall charger for my 505.

The charger at Sony specifies that it has a DC output of 5.2v & 2000mA

I have a wall charger for my Dell Axim and it has a DC output of 5.4v & 2410mA.

Will this charger work, or am I taking a chance of frying a board component if I try and use it?

Don't know how sensitive the reader is to the electrical specs, but here is the one I got, for a grand total of $8.84 US:

I have ordered one off Amazon for $8 because my 505 got "hung" on the USB connected screen and doing the reset by all the normal methods and the "alternate method I read in another thread have not worked.

If the one I already have will safely charge the 505, then I can kill the order and give that a try, but I love the reader and don't want to chance killing it with the charger that I have if it is not safe.

I've been using my old Axim charger for about 9 months now with no problems.
